parties can hold hands and they don't start out and obama proposal for democratic proposal a republican proposal. i am less interested in exactly what he said in the debates in the next four weeks then what whoever wins said in a week or two after the election. to me that is the time to step up into the broader leadership. a >> apology like to hear president obama say either before or after the election? >> if your view is that finance, that we are not going to have a deal that doesn't have revenues and spending and that's the biggest obstacle is on the revenue side and that is i do believe i have asked a lot of democratic senators and they say yes, that is that republicans continue to believe that at the end of the day in the 11th hour democrats as they did in 2011 at the end of 2010. frankly one of the things the president has to do is to make it crystal clear that he is serious than he is going to accept a deal that doesn't have both revenues and spending. lustrous way that out. i think when that becomes successful, that is my fear of going to january. we may have to go into january

. when you look at the major party candidates and this year's cycle, what's missing in the debate and the dialogue? and what do you wring to the table -- what do you bring to the table? >> guest: well, how about truth for starters. the notion that both obama and romney are arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we don't, um, i believe that we're going to find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we spend. >> host: so what are you seeing out there on that particular issue? what's your prescription, pardon the expression. >> guest: well, i oversaw the reform of medicaid in new mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we took it from a fee-for-service model to a managed care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, we set up better health care networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block grante
